    Bat Path

    I am having a hard time seeing the similarities. The weightlifter is using the extension to pull the weight straight up from a force pushing into the ground. Not sure why i remember this, but in my high school physics class my teacher talked something about if your car was stuck in a ditch...

    Bat Path

    I think i may have asked this in another forum after @Bonesaw started expressing opinions on hip extension. This is not a question just for you Mud but anyone. As I was trying to feel hip extension, i felt like the question that W=W was asking were valid. I felt like my hip ran out of runway...

    1st year 14u - Swing mechanics what to work on

    Thanks for the drill suggestion. Didn't get much of a chance to work with her this weekend. Question on the hitters you posted, Acuna and Bustos both look to be lengthening lead arm into toe touch. Essentially walking away from the hands, though they are staying in the same location relative...

    Teaching to spin

    Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!! This reminds me so much now of the hitters (like Pujols) saying hit 'Down to' the ball and everyone shows demo's of them with no posture swinging from A to C with nothing else but square shoulders and extended arms. The roll over drop, for purposes of old school...

    For those analyzing BB swings for a reference to hit in FP

    I dare to ask, what are the swing mechanics you speak of that cause fastpitch players to struggle? And would you suggest a different swing mechanic for fastpitch and a different mechanic for baseball?

    As a follow up, @dougromrell does virtual stuff. We had him analyze some video, and met him at a Rick Pauly clinic. He knows what he is doing.

    Motion Analysis Software for Mac?

    Also another comment, i have the Diamond Kinetics Pitch tracker, and i think i had to pay an annual fee for some of the services, but i am able to have DD pitch and it tracks the metrics of each pitch as well the video right along with the metrics. The ball is slightly heavier is our only tru...

    Motion Analysis Software for Mac?

    ^^^^^^^^ +1 on the coaches eye. i haven't tried it for a while, but have always thought the mobile devices have done better for me than the Mac. So i only used CE on my iPhone.

    1st year 14u - Swing mechanics what to work on

    Sorry, i am not understanding what point you are making. What about the hands? I dont see any head movement. The player in the video levels the barrel, perhaps to try and get into an on plane neck slot position, and then swings. She also has a higher handset, but that may be more because my DD...

    1st year 14u - Swing mechanics what to work on

    Thank you RD for taking the time to post. The other day i mentioned something about starting with the pigeon toe, as she seemed to open up the hips nearly immediately, but when i had her stand that way, it looked totally off. So i didn't press it. With what you posted, i must have been...

    Teaching to spin

    I assume you are talking about a 'roll over' drop which i read about alot of times on this forum. I think i recall coaches trying to get students to make moves that pulls down on the front of the ball. It doesn't exist. If this is not your description, then my apologies. For the drop you...

    This is great! thanks. I will give it a go the next chance we get.

    Bat Path

    i like this. So does this mean, if you don't actually create that barrel 'release' and 'whip', you are essentially missing out on the distal part of the double pendulum and in effect have made it a single pendulum with no available increase in acceleration?

    The BIG QUESTION about the TTB thread?

    Definitely not. it has taken quite some time to just gleen a few little nuggets over the whole Technical Hitting forum let alone one thread. On the pitching side however, Over the last few years and what i have worked with DD, i feel i am better than alot of the pitching coaches out there as...

    Bat Path

    So does that mean get more into front side before launch? Maybe have her do her move out, and hold, then swing? Just to get the feel?

    Bat Path

    Thanks, looks to be still alot of pressure on his deltoid. But i think if i do the towel drill with DD she can get the same feel as this. thanks.

    1st year 14u - Swing mechanics what to work on

    Re: hands - i agree, and that (IMO) is the rub with the TTB snap. I like how it gets the barrel moving but to do that her hands are stuck until her hands move away from her body at release later for finding the pitch. I just think her having loose hands caused an arm bar and more bat wrap and...

    1st year 14u - Swing mechanics what to work on

    Crappy. haha. Only thing we have right now is soft toss. Hasn't seen live pitching since last year fall ball. However, he swings were a slight drop barrel swing flat. body and lower was similar. alot of times way behind and swing with arms. so i think she just got fooled alot.
